Yaksaville

The People's Republic of Yaksaville is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, enforced nudity, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 170 million Yaksavilleans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Yaksavillean economy, worth 5.42 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 31,871 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales', many say faith is a crutch for those who can't move forward, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yaksaville's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yaksaville is ranked 51,989th in the world and 2nd in The United Trade and Treaty Front for Lowest Crime Rates, with 68.97 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
